Crime Families and Organizations

Gotham is a city riddled with crime of all sorts from the mundane to the supernatural. Below is a list of the most powerful groups but it is not limited to just these alon, there are always crooks looking for an opportunity on the dark streets of Gotham.

"The Big 5"
The Big 5 are five Gotham gangs (or families) that have control over the smuggling racket by means of Gotham's subways that connect to various districts. The city's major convergence point for it's subway system is Wayne Towers in the Old Gotham district. These railways are the most secure and unseen land-based transportation systems within Gotham itself. These gangs or families keep a strict pact of non-conflict with one another called the 5Pact or Pact of the Five. By rules of the 5Pact they may not fight other gangs of the Big 5 but within their individual district homes or turfs there is constant unrest and struggle over the rail system. It's a 'treasure' for the underworld and gives a sizable boon to those families or gangs involved (not that it makes them the most powerful but it is highly coveted).

East End: Ibenascu Crime Family
Chinatown: Yakuza

The Irish

Irish Mobs are a long standing tradition in Gotham dating back to the Wound Ravens of the 1800s and onward. The strongest location in Gotham for Irish organized crime is the Cauldron of Red Hook. Many families are included in this number most notably the McKillens who control the Chelsea subways, the Sullivans, the Rileys and the Wound Ravens. The Wound Ravens are themselves a Gotham tradition and little more than an assassins guild compromised of the Irish families best hit men (a specific tattoo makes them recognizable). The Wound Ravens are used only to take out non-Irish gangs and never against one another as it would break their alliance and traditions. Something the families all understand.

They deal heavily in human trafficking, contract killing and arms dealing through Eastern European connections.

They are located throughout Gotham and tend to have their own smaller gangs inside the larger calling of "the Joker Gang" such as the Cut-Ups, the Joybuzzers, Laugh out Loud and so on. Some gangs are much more violent or serious than others such as Joker's Elite (a biker gang of military vets most discharged for sanity reasons) and the League of Smiles (known to be very blood thirsty). Most of these lunatics are in love with the idea of the Joker and have never actually met the man.
